must remember always

i am SO ready for a break!

The true reason that I am so totally, completely and 100% ready for my 2 week and 2 day break over the holidays? If someone continues to ask you questions but they really do not care to hear your answers or give you credit for the inspiration they get from your answer - wouldn't you want to run away to? I am at that point where little things are annoying me for no good reason, I am questioning everything and not coming up with any answers that make sense and I am losing the focus that I need to be great at what I do. Bring on 2012 with a clean slate - can't wait to see what the New Year brings! (Unfortunately though, most people don't/won't change so it is up to me to get everything back on track - wish me luck!)

I am currently listening to this audiobook in my car and it is so good! Can't wait to find out how they catch the real killer.

On a recent visit to Target I saw this movie for $5.00. I have never seen or heard of this before but I cannot wait to watch it soon. I LOVE Cousin Eddie.

Chad and I are currently watching Season 5 of Dexter. Only 3 episodes in and it is so good!

first draft christmas wish list

My family has been asking me what I want for Christmas and I can honestly say that this year, I would love health and happiness for all that are close to me. I know it sounds sappy but it is the truth. I have felt "a change" this past year and am loving every minute of my marriage, my home, my family, my friends and my career. Life IS good. I drive by a church on my way to work each morning and they have a sign outside that says "The Lord is My Shepherd, I have all that I need" ... this brings me a bit of inner peace every day.

But because I am forced (twist my rubber arm) into name drawing, holiday planning, christmas party inviting, etc. - I have prepared a brief list just in case!

Because I am a dreamer ... an iPad is numero uno on my wish list this year (and probably was last year). I am head over heals in LOVE with my iPhone and can't even imagine what kind of time wasting trouble I could get in to with one of these bad boys. Chad and I are getting a mac sometime next year so this will wait but one day - you will be mine! Count on it!
 I have hard AMAZING things about this show so I would love the season DVDs so that Chad and I have a new series to follow. I would also love all the past episodes of Gilmore Girls too - that would be a delight!

Almost out of my bottle of RALPH and need to move on to something new. This smells DIVINE and my fingers are crossed that my amazing hubby comes through on Christmas Day :)

I don't need THESE track pants but I do need some new soccer gear including track pants, shin pads and boots.  

I want to build my collection of Christmas movies and we already have Santa Clause 3 so I need 1 and 2 but I had to post number 2 because it is the funniest one. Those reindeer slay me ... get it? Ha ha! I also want It's a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street and the list goes on but this is a must to add to our shelves this holiday season!

What are you wishing for?

I'm listening to this audiobook to get me into the holiday spirit. It isn't really working unfortunately but the background music sure is! 

I watched this adorable movie with our dog on her birthday. Ha ha - I thought she would like the animal theme. She got bored and went to lie down in bed but I enjoyed it. These little critters crack me up.

Just finished listening to this audiobook and I loved it. Barbara's history is a really interesting story. Anyone who enjoys memoirs like I do should check this out!

If you are following this blog you know that I LOVE the Heart of the City comic strip. This one cracked me up because it made me think of both my mom and my boss at the same time!

Two of my favourite girls - my little cousins Abbey and Ainsley in their soccer informs! My heart melts. The only issue is that Ainsley HATES soccer with a passion. Oh well - you win some, you lose some!

Here are my favourite girls again as Hermione (I'm thinking) and a kitty cat. Or maybe Ainsley is Abbey's cat from Harry Potter? Whatever - they are both Halloween sweethearts in my eyes! xo

Just finished listening to this audiobook. So simple and predictable but it was like a hot cup of tea on a cold fall day - it just made me feel cozy listening to it on the way to work.

My niece Sidney and her twin bro Chance enjoying the pumpkin patch. These kids are too adorable not too share and they have huge personalities to go along with their cuteness too. Love them!

I don't remember where I got this photo from so I apologize for not giving credit but seriously - if you are ever having a bad day just look at this and I know you will be smiling and enjoying life once again!

Hope you all are having a wonderful start to your week!

right now

Keeping close to home today. Sick again with a cold and ear infection. Hopefully I will be better for this year's holiday season if I get all the sickies out of the way now!

 on left-over Halloween mini chocolate bars. Each cold and flu seems to come with a different food craving and this one definitely wants to be fed sweet things. Weird.

 on Mountain Dew. I believe in fluids, fluids and more fluids when I'm sick but right now this is the closest thing we have in the house to Ginger Ale.

 all of the things I have to do at work but that just makes me even more tired and I just want to crawl back in to bed.

oping that I feel 100% better tomorrow.

 that I was feeling 100% better right now.

 for this stupid cold to go away! :)

 that it hurts to even type this.

 forward to the weekend but more importantly to the next few long weekends and Christmas holidays.

 all of the successful events I have organized over the last little while.

 for Christmas gifts. I feel like I am already behind! 

 we have the money to buy gifts for everyone under the sun.

 a break from life today. And maybe tomorrow.

 The Girl Who Played with Fire.

 to new episodes of Sarah's House on HGTV. Man she is a snob but I do enjoy it. Twisted - I know.

 for my career, home, family, Lexxus, friends and always ... and most of all ... Chad.

Thanks for the template and inspiration Narrating Life! LOVE your blog!
